K’naan - Somalia

Posted 7 years ago
Producer:
Direct Current
Album:
Troubadour

Though K’naan currently resides in Toronto, if you ask him which locale he represents, he’ll tell you he represents his birthplace of Somalia all the way. Like many other African nations, Somalia has had more than its fair share of problems, from Ethiopian invasions to the pirates of the surrounding Indian Ocean. K’naan has chosen to use his new single to represent his nation, seeking to bring awareness of its social and political ills and hopefully lead a movement for change. Produced by Direct Current, Somalia is an emotional track rife with cautious patriotism.  For more of K’naan’s message, check out his debut album, Troubadour, which will be available all over the world in the first quarter of 2009.
